In beginning of our study of the Law of Moses we must first consider that in the modern world today there is a paradox surrounding the Old Testament Laws. There seems to be two distinct attitudes towards the Law of Moses, known as the Torah to the Jews and the Law or Commandments of God to the Christians. Most Christian churches today teach that the Law of Moses has been abolished, or nailed to the cross, by the New Testament. If this were so then why did Jesus, the Messiah say in Matthew 19:17? “And He said to him, “Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.”
On the other hand the Jews reject Jesus as the Messiah, and in many respects have down away with the Law of Moses, although they claim to obey it. The Jewish nation has abolished the law by changing it. They have replaced the authority of God with their authority of each generation of Rabbis, and their man made traditions.
To discover the truth amid these two viewpoints we must define the Torah, the Law of God, and what its true relationship is to man.
